This Articulate challenge is about using Pantone’s color of the year, Radiant Orchid, to create a simple e-learning template. I didn’t have a clue about how to approach this, but that’s normal, so I jumped in anyway.
I wanted to brainstorm something in this color that would have meaning to me. Whether it’s the vegan thing or that it’s summertime and I get to eat lots of them right now, I quickly came up with purple fruits and vegetables.
I planned to find a character dressed in a similar color, if possible, and got lucky to find one dressed as a waitress. I reasoned she’d probably work at a cafe that only serves purple produce, and the rest is history.
Color, Tints, & Shades
I stayed pretty true to the palette. The only thing I did that was slightly different was to make the player color relatively transparent, and the hover states on the menu items are also slightly transparent.
I tried to order the fruits and vegetables to mirror the shade differences on the menu items. They’re both darkest at the top of the screen and lightest at the bottom.
See it in Action!
Feel free to take a look at the radiance
right here, and don’t let the waitress get you down. She hasn’t eaten her vegetables today.
